In brief: Make them fun

When we need to treat a child's vision with glasses, the process can often be made easier by making it fun.
Try to show your child other children who wear glasses. Make games to comparing how good the vision is with and without lenses. Rewards for wearing and using the glasses can motivate. Also, if a child can do something with glasses v. Without he/she may wear them more.

In brief: Beat him up

Joking. Dont allow him to watch tv/play video games unless he wears them. That'll work.
